Jonathon Gruber, the guy behind Obamacare, took to the screens to blame President Donald Trump for the fact that the whole program was failing nationally.
He said that since Trump got in, insurers were pulling out of the market, and leaving some counties uninsured. But he’s lying. Yes, some of the major insurance companies are pulling out of the market right now, leaving many without insurance. But they “gave notice” to quit months ago as is the legal requirement. In fact, they gave notice whilst Obama was still riding high.

As reported in the Daily Caller:
“Look, and who’s fault is this? Before President Trump was elected there were no counties in America that did not have an insurer. Since President Trump has been elected, and massive…,” Gruber responded.
“Wait, you’re going to blame the problems of Obamacare on President Trump?” Wallace interjected.
Gruber went on to claim that Trump has undercut the open enrollment program in Obamacare and “doesn’t honor the obligations this law makes to insurers.”
“As a result premiums are going up and insurers are exiting,” he said.
